I’m writing today to let you know of a huge travesty going on in this town of ours.
In just under a month the annual Earth Day Fair will be going on. Thousands will gather in Balboa Park to celebrate life, the planet, tolerance and humanity.
Unfortunately, though, some will be excluded from this event.
One group will be the San Diego Libertarian Party. We have been told that our message of liberty is not welcome at the fair, and we are also accused of not having genuine concern about a clean, healthy environment.
We are very saddened by this, and there could be nothing further from the truth.
Some of the issues that we presented are to me obviously pro-planet.
For instance we believe that hemp cultivation should be totally legal in America. We know that many of the petro-chemical companies are responsible for massive amounts of pollution, which the government allows them to get away with, even helps by giving them subsidies. We feel that if hemp were allowed here it would be used an alternative for fuels, foods, medicines, clothes, etc… Even with this message we were denied.
The second issue we proposed to bring light to was the fact the military industrial complex is the probably the largest polluter of any. They kill huge amounts of people, animals, crops, rivers, you name it they kill it. We stand against all wars of aggression and actively work to candidates who will stand up against this machine put into office. Yet still we are denied a booth.
We have been told we are shills for the Republican Party. HAHAHA. What a joke.
So yes, I’m writing you today to let you know of this travesty, but also asking for you to help us spread this message of peace and liberty. Please let me know if you have any thoughts on the matter or would like to discuss it in more detail. Thanks for all your writings and may peace be with you!
